Well here we go, I am just starting to learn bbq. I got a Weber Performer charcoal grill. I put it together, according to the instructions. The problem is the gas tube has a gap of open air between nozzle and and burner tube. I am quite worried to use it. I have included a pic. I called Weber, and the CSR looked at the display model in their office and said it was normal. Does anyone have experience with this?
Yep it should be OK..
The gas comes out of a small nozzle at relativel high pressure/velocity and creates a vacuum inside the larger tube that pulls in the right amount of air.
Just pulled a 6 lb pork shoulder out of the freezer to smoke on New Year's Day. Gotta fire up the flowerpot smoker and maker sure it's still working tomorrow. :D
Thanks for your help gentlemen. :)
Learned a lot of tips/recipes from the Barbeque Pit Boys youtube channel that I want to take into the New Year with me.
Bought a cheap kettle barbeque that I want to get a lot of use out of. Infact indoors or outdoors I want to try and cook from fresh as much as possible. i.e. no ready/microwaveable meals.
cooked up some simple steaks using Kingsford briquettes, and Jack Daniels wood chips. One of the best steaks I have ever had.
I actually have been doing pretty good on cooking, but my picture taking has been terrible!
We had friends arrive on Thursday and celebrate NY with us and had a great time. This morning we started the year with some Eggs Benedict made with some Canadian Bacon that I had leftover from last year (gotta love the Food Saver) and it was a great way to start the year. Sorry no pics.
This afternoon, we are having some ribs and other goodies. It should good food for watching the games.
This was from a couple months ago, but these are photos from my two practice runs for pulled pork for an Iowa meet-up I hosted in November. I had never made or eaten pulled pork before but it will be regular thing for me from now on!
I have not Cooked anything yet this year.. but I did get a smokedaddy for Xmas that I am excited to try out!
This veal chop is one of the best I have fixed -- at least it really hit the spot! I used Dizzy Pig, Raising the Steaks and added a nice baked potato and some salad for a quick dinner.
It is really very rare -- remember the meat starts out white.
Looks awesome, Bob! I love a good veal chop. Used to get them at my favorite restaurant in Encinitas, I Triulli.
My first smoked turkey on the WSM, worked great. Have done close to 10 smokes on this thing and it works fantastic.
Nice looking bird!
